Do you think I need a new Motherboard?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well I recently got a hyper 212+ and I am thinking about putting it on and overclocking some. Probably not a lot but some. However, I'm not so sure about the mobo I have right now. Would it be good to overclock some or do you think it's time for an upgrade?

It depends on how much extra voltage you need over stock to overclock. With no heatsink on the MOSFETs-any serious overvoltage could cause your MOSFETs to get smoked killing your board.

So on a budget, instead of spending maybe $100 on a system that'll be obsolete in 6-8 months...you recommend spending $400+ on a system that'll be obsolete in 2 weeks?
